  • Publication number: 20200079715
    Abstract: A resorcinol with modifications at the 2-position is provided. The reactant resorcinol may have a variety of functional groups at each of the 1, 3, and 5 position such as a hydroxide, a lower alkyl group, a phenyl, a substituted phenyl, a lower alkenyl, or a lower alkynyl sp2 carbon group (e.g., substituted phenyl, vinyl), sp (e.g., alkyne), hydrogen. The resorcinol is modified at the 2-position with a nucleophile or an electrophile. The resulting resorcinol may serve as a stable intermediate for the synthesis of cannabinoid or cannabinoid derivatives.

  • Publication number: 20190231737
    Abstract: A mixture of cannabinoids, drying agents, flowing agents, and/or stabilization agents are provided. The mixture may be a dry powder formulation similar to the consistency of flour or sand. The mixture may comprise a cannabinoid raffinate, an isolated cannabinoid, maltodextrin, and or silica. The ratio of raffinate to solids may be less than 0.625.

  • Patent number: 8824294
    Abstract: Congestion control techniques based upon resource utilization information stored by a network device. According to an embodiment of the present invention, a network device is configured to identify a data source causing congestion based upon information stored by the network device identifying a set of data sources, and for each data source, information identifying the amount of a resource of the network device being used for processing data received by the network device from the data source.

  • Publication number: 20070253438
    Abstract: Differentiated services for network traffic using weighted quality of service is provided. Network traffic is queued into separate per flow queues, and traffic is scheduled from the per flow queues into a group queue. Congestion management is performed on traffic in the group queue. Traffic is marked with priority values, and congestion management is performed based on the priority values. For example, traffic can be marked as “in contract” if it is within a contractual limit, and marked as “out of contract” if it is not within the contractual limit. Marking can also include classifying incoming traffic based on Differentiated Service Code Point. Higher priority traffic can be scheduled from the per flow queues in a strict priority over lower priority traffic. The lower priority traffic can be scheduled in a round robin manner.

  • Publication number: 20070206602
    Abstract: Differentiated service classes on a label switch path are managed by comparing at least one packet field value included in a packet of data to mapping field values of a mapping that correlates the mapping field values with queues. The packet is stored into one of the queues based on the comparing. A first subset of the queues is scheduled using a first queue scheduling algorithm and a second subset of the queues is scheduled using a second queue scheduling algorithm. The packet is transmitted onto the label switch path in accordance with a predefined scheduling order of the first subset of the queues and the second subset of the queues.

  • Publication number: 20070143196
    Abstract: Various embodiments of the present invention are directed to methods and systems for securitization of certificates of deposit. In addition, the present invention relates to a corresponding security itself (e.g., a security associated with one or more certificates of deposit). As such, in one embodiment, the present invention creates a more or less standard investment instrument (i.e. the funding certificate) by pooling the CDs to back the instument—thus, the net effect is the replacement of non-marketable instrument provided by financial institutions (i.e. the CD) with negotiable securities issued in the public capital markets (i.e.
